Leading politician and bestselling author Newt Gingrich has teamed with novelist Pete Earley to create a gripping Washington thriller in which Gingrich brings his unparalleled understanding of the corridors of power and the intelligence community. Duplicity is a ripped-from-the-headlines action thriller that takes readers into the hidden corridors of Washington politics and onto the streets of Mogadishu, Somalia, with the same realism and intensity as Homeland and Black Hawk Down. Only two Americans escape when Islamic militants lead a Benghazi-style attack on a newly opened US embassy in Somalia. Brooke Grant, the young commander of the Marine Corps Embassy Guards, and CIA Station Chief Gunter Connor become their colleagues' best hope for rescue after US troops are barred from entering Mogadishu because of civil unrest. To survive, Grant and Connor must avoid detection by outwitting The Falcon, a treacherous Islamic radical christened "the Osama bin Laden" of Africa.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

[Gettysburg] is believable and beautifully written...every bit as good as Michael Sharra's The Killer Angels. Not only do Gingrich and Forstchen bring the characters to life, and often horrible death, but they do so with memorable observations on the ways of war and vivid, technically accurate descriptions of frightful Civil War combat.—The Courier Journal, on Gettysburg
Grim, gritty, realistic, accurate, and splendid, this is a soaring epic of triumph over almost unimaginable odds.—Library Journal on To Try Men's Souls
The authors' research is impeccable...the reader is left believing it could really have happened this way.—Booklist on Never Call Retreat
An exciting alternative history of the Civil War. Character depictions are vivid, detailed, and insightful. One of the best novels of the Civil War to appear in recent years.—Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) on Grant Comes East
A thrilling tale of America's darkest day.—W.E.B. Griffin on Pearl Harbor
